Weather: With all of our events taking place outdoors, the weather conditions can play a big factor in every race. A large portion of the race fees collected have already been allocated and used by race day and as such there will be no refunds because of a weather cancellation. Registered participants will still receive their T-shirt and race kit. Thank you for your understanding these policies.

Aid Stations Important Note – we will be providing water in 18 litre bottles for our aid stations but in order to help the environment we will not be providing disposable cups or bottles for any of our events this year. We ask athletes to bring your own refillable and reusable bottles and carry them with you on the run. Thank you
